They just can't seem to get anything right these days. Interesting and fun read:

that songsmith ad is awful.ROFLMAO

good thing for microsoft it's commercial is not aimed at apple fanboy bloggers.  Smiley
joe sixpack will understand that macs are for those guys sitting at starbucks wearing turtlenecks and scarves in the summer.

seriously though microsoft could use some rebranding. get the xbox people working on windows stuff or something. xbox and microsoft xbox games have really good marketing compared to windows.

it should be easy. it's like warner bros and superman. they own the rights to FUCKING SUPERMAN movies. why isn't there one EVERY FUCKING SUMMER! we had 1 since the eighties and it sucked. it's superman. what's hard about making a superman movie? spend a billion on ridiculous effects and action, another billion on marketing.

LOL - great video.  She probably started smouldering like a vampire in sunlight when she poked her nose in the store.  Macs are great machines but I find myself feeling uneasy in Mac stores sometimes. 

I much prefer the Frys and Micro Center experience to a store with more employees than shoppers.  They also grin like Christians at a Rodeo  and wear roller skates on Tuesdays    I think the apple juice is spiked.

Classic.  Absolutely classic.

Me?  I love going into Frys.  It's the only place I know where the shoppers are typically smarter than the toadies they have working there.  And I totally dig the "UN General Assembly" feel on Ad Day Thursdays. 

Great discounted book section too.  Devilish
